Maker Faire Adelaide is back for another year, celebrating the wonderful creations of local makers.

Maker Faire Adelaide is a celebration of South Australian makers and making, showcasing technology, engineering, science, arts, crafts, education, food and much more. This year marks the fourth anniversary of Maker Faire, which has already become the largest event of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

Over 100 makers will descend at the Tonsley Precint, bringing with them hands-on displays and inspiring talks. There’ll be a no-rules miniature car building competition, robot combat competition, epic paper plane challenge and even the hand-made car from Pulteney Grammar School’s production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Also don’t miss a special talk from Ron Allum, submarine designer, cave diver and inventor of Deepsea Challenger. Allum has worked with legendary film director James Cameron to bring the Titanic wreck to people’s television sets.

Maker Faire Adelaide is on at the Tonsley Precint on 5 November, 2017. Early bird tickets are now available for $7 and tickets will be available on the day for $10. Children under 16 are free with a paying adult. For more information and to get excited, head to the Maker Faire website.
